(KSL News) Airport police arrested a man who somehow got inside the secure perimeter of Salt Lake International this morning. The man climbed the fence and wandered onto one of the runways.
Security personnel briefly closed two runways, but airport officials say there was no disruption of air travel.
Richard LaMar Hall is in jail tonight, booked on suspicion of burglary and use of airport restricted areas. Airport authorities say they have ruled out terrorism as a motive for Hall's actions.

What typically happens when someone unauthorized wanders onto the airfield?

As the article says.... They get arrested.

Alright, who among us did this...? Big grin

This guy must REALLY like planes! That, or he just wanted to cause some trouble or something.

Oh no.... I bet this will cause the authorities at SLC to look even more suspiciously at spotters and plane watchers.... as if the situation here wouldn't be pretty bad already Sad

I don't know what a typical sentence is, but you might try looking up past incidents of this type of thing, and what happened to the offender. Similar cases I remember: 1) an employee at HND decided to do his morning exercises on the runway a little bit before the airport opened in the morning, 2) a woman passed out while driving and went through the fence at IND, and was not charged with anything.

This happened to me back in 2000. It was around 1AM and I was driving home on SLC's perimeter road back when you could still drive around the west side of the airfield. I fell asleep just before an S curve leading under the taxiway bridges and out towards the hangars. After I woke up, I found myself in a totaled '99 Camaro SS and on the SIDA side of the fence. After about an hour of waiting fo rthe police to show, they only charged me for the damaged fence and that's it.



Next trip: SLC-LAX-JFK-LAX-SLC on AA, gotta say goodbye to my beloved 762!

I spent at least a minute scouring that damned picture trying to find a guy wandering around in it...

It all depends on intent. Seems like at RNO we have had our share of drunk or disoriented drivers breaking through fences and gates and driving out on to the AOA. Don't recall anyone being charged with anything other than DUI or reckless driving, because in these cases there was no terrorist/criminal intent.


I'm sorry, ma'am, I don't work for the airline.
